Flu Tests Flooding Labs

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Possible swine flu tests are flooding labs around the state.

The Tri-Cities lab went through about a hundred tests a day last week.

So far we know the Benton Franklin Health District has sent only five samples to the state lab that they suspect to contain the type "A" virus. The state has tested only 279 samples out of more than 600 samples collected.
